**Answer:**

9.18 feet

**Step-by-step explanation:**

dimensions of whole area = (20 + x)(34 + x)

= 680 + 54x + x^2

where x is the width of the flower bed.

we know that x^2 + 54x + 680 = 1200

x^2 + 54x - 520 = 0

x = 9.18 or x = -63.18

width of flower bed cannot be negative therefore it is width 9.18 feet
